The Foutz Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that awards musical instruments to children K-12. It was founded after Travis’ passing in 2017. Music was his passion and the Foundation was started to make sure every child can share the same passion that he had for music. Travis was a class of 2000 Greenville High school graduate. The Foundation has awarded over $3,000 in musical instruments, including guitars, viola, and mandolin. They have several other instruments waiting for someone which includes a trumpet, drum set, and more. The Foundation operates as a labor of love and 100% of all donations go towards the mission. If you love music and need assistance or know someone who does, or just want to learn more about the Foundation or how you can help, please visit the website at www.foutzfoundation.org. You can also get more information on the Facebook page at Foutz Foundation.
